No Jet Yet for SD Governor

It's Not News

South Dakota's governor, Mike Rounds, said there won't be any decision on whether to get rid of the state's 1988 King Air B200, at least until auditors examinie its costs and compare them to a likely replacement, one without propellers.

Sources near the study say that, while a jet (they turned down a Citation II in 1994, when replacing the MU-2 in which the former governor, George Mickelson and seven others were killed) would cost more to buy, maintain, and operate, it has a higher resale value.

The downside to a jet, some say, would be public perception: some would probably protest the higher initial cost, operating expenses, and maintenance; and overlook the resale value.

There are any number of jet people who would argue that a jet, faster point-to-point, also can cost less overall, if used primarily on long trips.

That, of course, brings up the question of whether the Governor should maybe have two airplanes...
